A reflective poem written by our Catholic Life Prefect, Meg, in response to the world wide Coronavirus crisis

let me show you a world...
 
let me show you world where the hunger's unseen
it’s  not splashed over papers or on neon bright screens
let me show you a world where the people don't care
where the rich all go blind to what is and is not fair.
let me show you a world full of travel and news,
but where far-away videos are starving for views.
let me show you a world where we panic and flap,
only if the problem lands right on our lap.
let me show you a world where we waste and destroy,
'go green' they all say what a tactical ploy.
let me show you a world where everything's wrapped,
in plastics on plastic leaving animals trapped.
where the hungry are dying while so many can save,
if we all live as one and all try to be brave,
working together in a logical way,
we won't be unnerved by what media say.
let us look at statistics, and not follow the crowd,
don't believe all the headlines, and the dull painted cloud.
lets make our own minds up and decide what we read,
not be whipped into frenzy powered by greed.
when everything's over let me show you a world, where the people are caring and no ones unheard.
where we all live together, we all live as one,
and where solidarity and kindness overall, won.

School Update

St. Dominic’s Priory School is currently open for all children in Pre-school, Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 in addition to children of key workers across all years.

For those children who remain at home, the full curriculum is being taught daily by teachers via Microsoft Teams. Children can communicate with teachers and friends during lesson time and can download and submit their work online helping them to continue to be motivated and remain focused.

We have been conducting virtual tours, meetings and online lesson experiences for parents and children considering St. Dominic’s Priory School for their children and have places available across a number of year groups for September 2020.

We have received an unprecedented number of admissions in Year 9 for September 2020 and as a result have added an additional form class to accommodate. As a result we now have places available for Year 9 from September 2020.
